Germanic Javelin

A javelin is a light spear designed primarily to be thrown, historically as a ranged weapon. The word javeline comes from Middle English and it derives from Old French javelin, a diminutive of javelot, which meant spear. The shaft is made of solid ash and has untreated finish. The spear-tip (javelin) is not mounted. Two nails for fastening on the shaft are included in delivery. We recommend an additional gluing with hot glue or birch pitch. The ash-shaft tapers in both directions. The butt cap made of metal provides the counterweight the spearhead, so you can throw precisely. It also prevents splitting of the shaft end of unprotected wood.

I have ordered a sword in your store and would like to order a scabbard now, how?

The scabbards are made exactly to the size of the blade. Please select a scabbard you like. If you´re not sure, whether it is a suitable one, contact us with your order number and we will recommend you a suitable style. If you have already received the sword, we will ask you after receiving your order to submit several measurements of the sword blade. If we still have not dispatched the sword, we will take measurements of the blade ourselves and have the scabbard made for you in correct size.
